    use NetConfig to set up your TCP/IP connection to your network, Once you have done that and you machine is in the same subnet as another machine on you network you can then connect to you linux box via it's IP address.
    for example
    Windows machine:
    IP: 192.168.0.2
    Subnet 255.255.255.0

    Linux machin
    IP: 192.168.0.3
    Subnet 255.255.255.0

    you can now run telnet to connect to the linux machine from the windows machine, or an FTP program or web browser depending on what is running. (I don't think FTPD or HTTPD run by default on RH 7.1)

    If you want to use machine names between linux and windows machines I believe you would have to install samba on the linux box. Someone else would have to help you with this since I have never used it.

    Hope this helps.
